. for beingso much here. let's talk about what we learned last week and president obama talking about the potential of a chemical weapons. evan mcmorris-santoro, where we add in this? why is the white house's stance significant? guest: there has been a lot of debate. the obama administration said a few months ago, they drew the proverbial red line about chemical weapons, the idea that of chemical weapons were used, they would cross the line and we would see engagement. that is what people read about that. there were reports that some chemical weapons may have been used. shortly thereafter, the white house was engaged on that and some observers felt they change the way the red line works. the white house says it was a systematic use. we're seeing a lot of discussion about persian towards what might be u.s. involvement. it's unfair to say that will happen or not. the white house is now talking about using chemical weapons and what it means for how the united states in gauges. host: the associated press has this headline -- obama's syrian caution. one of the conversations going on in con

. >> the white house correspondence dipper, president obama, and late night talk show hosts headline the event before celebrities, journalists, and the white house press corp.. it starts with the red carpet arrivals live today at 6:15 eastern on c-span. >> gary schapiro outlines strategies used to strive in today's economy now on booktv. >> thank you, rick, i appreciate the introduction, and thanks to all of you who give up your time to be here, and listen, and i hope this will be interactive after awhile. the map is i speak a little bit, and then we have some interaction and questions. i spoken of many, many groups around the country and around the world about the issues, and every group is different with different interests. a little bit more about my background. i do head a trade association. it's a non-profit organization of over 2,000 technology companies, everyone you expect from microsoft to sny, best buy to target to companies like google and yahoo. companies at the cutting edge, and i have been in the position for over 20 years and i started out as a lawsuit in washington, d.c., actua
re-talking about? are we talking about the barack obama that his -- the administration raised the fee for citizenship application to get back down again? don't get me started. i can go low sides on this because these politicians, that's my point, have moved them play this game like checkers or chess when it suits their interest in suits their politics. it's not just john mccain. >> i will tell what barack obama we are talking about. we are talking about the president obama that just won a re-election with 71% of the latino vote and understands there is a dead and we will not let him off the puck. i think it's a president obama who no longer has realm and manual as a chief of staff telling him it's too politically costly for you to do this in your first term. i think the president barack obama who wants a legacy and understand that this can be a major point for his legacy. to the point where he is stepping back. the question you asked antonio, if president obama had done what he said he was going to do and luis knows this and crossed his own legislation on congress to say here is my bi
with the president tonight. >> as president obama continued to trike to talk up an economic resurgence as the focus of his three-day trip south of border. >> let's do more to expand trade and commerce that creates good jobs. >> some better than expected news north of the border with the labor department reporting the unemployment raid dropped to 7.5%, the lowest level in five years, amid signs more people were finding jobs. in addition to april's gains of 165,000 new jobs, the government revised its february and march numbers upward, by a total of 114,000 jobs. >> we are gaining jobs, over 160,000 new jobs. unemployment has ticked down. that's good news. >> rick: still there were major warning signs the economy is struggling. the manufacturing structure created not a single job. construction employment fell for the first time in a year. the commerce department says manufacturing jobs fell. many are unable to find jobs. >> we need to have more people working, more taxpayers. not raising taxes. we could do it if not for that this drag of the health care law. >> rick: they said it's time toned the se
, for me, was so powerful during the election was the time when obama actually had to come out and talk explicitly about race. because one of the things -- >> he did it here if philadelphia. >> he did it right here in philadelphia. one of the ironies, there's so many ironies in our contemporary political moment, but one of the most powerful ones is the first black president is the one who can talk the least about race. it's the third, fourth and fifth rail for that -- i mean, there's something about race that he knows he can't discuss, and part of what he tried to do in that moment at least was to say let me say something th think is going to bring people together that's forward thinking, and then hopefully i'll never have to bring it up again. and there's something about that, i think, in some ways that is quintessential paranoia. the idea is americans are so fatigued about race, they're so resistant to thinking about racial inclusion that to even bring up the idea of race too often means folks are going to disqualify you from the highest office in the land. you're not going to be a pr
as well. they burned more than 100 acres so far. >>> today president obama begins a three-day trip to mexico. he'll meet later today with mexican president. we expect the leaders to talk about the immigration reform bill congress is debating right now. they'll also likely discuss trade ties between the two countries. president obama will also visit costa rica during this trip and meet with that country's president as well. >>> this morning churches across the region and country are opening early for national day of prayer. designated by the president each year the day of prayer invites americans of all faith to give thanks for blessings. this year the president asked specifically prayers for victims and survivors of the boston bombings, texas fertilizer plant explosion and newtown shootings. the day doesn't come without controversy. gay rights groups are protesting the honorary chairman of this year's event. he will officially open the national day of prayer at the pentagon later this morning. protesters want the pentagon to withdraw its invitation because he teaches that marriage
because of -- when you talk about obama care, it has been a big issue. has it changed your perspective, slowed anything down or does it matter? >> it slowed down the sales due to uncertainty in health care providers and what they can pay for and what happens with medicaid and medicare spending. to really deal with long-term demographics. >> you mentioned immigration, visa issue and engineers. >> yes. >> we have people -- companies constantly talk about that. are there really not enough engineers in this country? you can't find them efficiently? what is the real problem? >> there are not coming through the programs. >> you cannot find them for your specific issue? >> we can't find enough. it is very, very difficult. >> it's a great career. but you go back. like when the president said you have a drink with mitch mcconnell. come engineering, any of those things. i wonder how do we get people to realize what a great future they would have if they boit the bullet. how do we do it? or do we let all the foreigners. >> i've been told, and i could be wrong on this, there are two levels. there'

. at the live desk, melissa mollet, news4. >>> today president obama begins a three-day trip to mexico. he'll meet later today with the mexican president. we expect the leaders to talk about the immigration reform bill congress is debating right now. they'll also likely discuss trade ties between the two countries. president obama will also visit costa rica during his trip and meet with that country's president as well. >>> an early morning for churches in our area as they mark the national day of prayer. the day of prayer is held every may and it invites americans of all faiths to give thanks for blessings and pray for guidance and protection for the country. president obama is specifically asking churches to pray for victims and survivors of the boston bombings, texas fertilizer plant explosion and the in ynewtown shooting. gay rights groups are protesting the honorary chairman. he's set to officially open the day of prayer at the pentagon later this morning. gay rights advocates want the pentagon to withdraw the invitati invitation. >>> our northern virginia bureau will be in court when
you're a very principled man, very consistent. talk to us a little bit and quickly about the inconsistency here in the obama administration. they went into libya where there was no slaughter taking place and based it on a doctrine of responsibility to protect innocent civilians. in syria, you have an actual slaughter taking place. no action by the administration. i'm not arguing either way. i'm just saying this is a gross inconsistency. >> i think that it would be a misjudgment of president obama to say that he is not capable of using deadly force. the whole drone war would prove otherwise. i think we have to understand that in benghazi, we were dragged into that war simply to oust gadhafi and in syria, there are elements from outside syria, from a number of different countries that are fomenting the war there to try to knock out assad or keep the war going to debilitate assad and somehow adversely affect iran. so there is politics being played which are very deadly. the administration has to be very careful here. i think they know one thing and they better know it, and t
that many others were talking about immigration. you and dennis miller were discussing my remarks a day or two later and mr. miller was complaining, as i recall it, that president obama had about called it terrorism on the first day. he waited until the second day. that was an appropriate criticism given his viewpoint of the president. the notion you suspend discussion of important issues in face of tragedy, i do not accept. but i did begin the interview with my feeling of sadness and condolences for people. >> bill: here is why it might be inappropriate. because when you say that look, no tax cut would help this situation, you basically polarizing americans who want lower taxes, smaller government. but in a time like this, in boston, and you're from boston, i wanted to see -- i called for on the air all americans to come together. all right? not only to support the grieving families -- grieving families but to show the world we're a united front. and you are not going to come in here to our house and intimidate us. >> bill: i agree. >> bill: by your rhetoric, you're dividing people 24
on weapons of mass destruction. while president obama seems to have learned that lesson, many in the press and congress are pushing hard and fast for military intervention in syria. we will talk about what that would actually mean in a bit. first i want to share the three awesomist things on the internet today. beginning with a cool feature from the new york times. yes, scott fitzgerald novel, coming up with a film and the book is currently topping the amazon best seller list. the marketing of the book has the gatsby lovers up in arms. it is probably a good thing he is not around to see the film. barnes & noble will sell both editions and wal-mart will only sell the book with leo on the cover. perhaps that book seller just needs a reminder of last year's best seller. second awesomist thing -- by the way, that cover is awesome. second thing, a twitter trend that reached a whole new level. as salon puts it, anything and everything that is even the slightest potential to become a mean will get its own twitter account. case in point, clint eastwood's rnc speech to an empty chair. when senator
're the international house of radio this morning. >> caller: hello. hi, i wanted to call -- i wanted to talk about this guy that said obama said he wanted to fundamentally change our society. and therefore, they are going to become like europe. i already became like europe. >> stephanie: right. but you have better hot coco. >> caller: i hear this so much from americans when i listen to the media, and they don't have any idea how diverse europe is. our economy is doing just great. same with most of northern europe, germany, et cetera granted spain, disaster. italy, greece, yes. >> portugal. >> stephanie: yeah -- >> caller: but the thing they should keep in mind is that part of the reason that those countries have not been able to recover from the global crash, that we might call the bush crash, fundamental reason they haven't been able to recover is a, europe doesn't have a central strong bank. meaning countries can't devalue their own currency. so the spanish euro is basically pegged to a strong german euro. so that causes a big problem, and then the second part of it is that the
the term that president obama and unions use. so dpaif talked about the neutrality agreement. it wasn't neutrality agreement. it gave the information to the unions. it fobbing away the right to a secret ballot. the employee free choice act. it's not free choice. that would have taken away the right to a secret ballot and imposed mandatory arbitration, mandatory arbitration on our unions and firms. finally official time i wrote an article about official time in today's clear market.com. official time is time that government workers spend not working for the government, but working for their union. there are 35 people at the department of transportation when spend all their days, not doing anything for the federal government but only working for the union. 17 much these are air traffic controllers. 16 of these air traffic controllers are being paid six figure salvation army. for some reason, it's called official time. george would have loved it. he would have loved dave's book. which you should buy. thank you for inviting me. [applause] >> let me start off, dave, ynt tell you how import
weapon on them. >>> president obama returns back in washington this hour after a three-day trip to costa rica. he joined the president today for an event. at his earlier stop in mexico she talked about immigration and security improvements along the border. >>> u.s. officials believe israel conducted an air strike into syria. that reportedly shows that the strikes may have occurred as israeli jets were flying over neighboring lebanon. israel has said it will do anything it takes to stop syria from arming militants in lebanon. >>> there's a lot more than waves washing up on the beeches. try cocaine, multiple packages of the drug have been found along more than ho miles of atlanta coastline. the beaches are closed while the officers look for any additional cocaine bundles. no one knows where the drugs came from. >>> the iron man series off to a great run. iron man 3 set up one of the biggest opening weekends. it's po set up to 175 million through sunday and would put it second all time to last year's weekend of the avenn gers. >> tamerlan tsarnaev is dead. fbi agents are looking at people
after the attack. that's of course first lady michelle obama visiting heather in the hospital. not long after that visit, heather faced a decision. it's a decision that's hard to imagine, whether or not to keep her injured foot. we talked earlier today. can you tell me about what you remember from that day? >> yeah. that day, i came up to boston with a group of friends to watch the red sox game, and then go watch the runners close to the finish line at a bar called forum. i remember getting -- when we got to the bar, they were standing at the door taken people's i.d.s. my two girls were in front of me. i was the last one in line. my friends were already inside the bar. and we heard, you know, a loud noise. everybody, i think all of us turned around. i know i saw a lot of smoke. i saw people crying and running, and i immediately thought i was at some sort of terrorist attack. >> that was your initial thought? >> it was. because it reminded me of something i saw on the september 11th events. so before i could even think of what to do, the second blast happened and i found myself catapulte
the reverend talk about laughing in church today. washington's annual right of spring did not disappoint. the white house correspondence dinner attracted an a-list of hollywood celebrities to join president obama and a night of fun and one liners.?e check out the highlights. ♪ >> how do you like my new entrance music? i understand second term need a burst of new energy. try some new things. and my team and i talked about it. we were willing to try anything so we borrowed one of michelle's tricks. >> seriously, mr. president, your hair is so white, it could be a member of your cabinet. speaking of the cabinet, the president recently picked his new treasury secretary jack lew. gives me great joy to know if the president has to let him go he'll get to say, it's not lew, it's me. >> the media landscape is changing so rapidly. yo up with it. i mean, i remember when buzzfeed was something i did in college around 2:00 a.m. >> some people say print media is dying, but i don't believe it. and neither does my blacksmith. >> i'm also hard at work on plans for the obama library an
as big as sandy that hit the east coast. no one talks about it. we had a mayor in new york say we need to vote for barack obama because of sandy, because of climate change. there were three storms just as big, bigger that hit the east coast in one year. >> yeah. >> we didn't have the same c02 levels in 1954. >> no. we can go on having a debate whether there's change going on. all i can tell you is that change is taking place. we are seeing different weather patterns, different behaviors. what is popt for the growth of the economies and the security is that government and insurers work together to minimize the impact. >> can we go back to the idea of hot money coming into the insurance agency. we're always trying to figure out where the next bubbles are being created. not necessarily in the lloyd's marketplace s. that a bubble that's being created. >> i wouldn't say as of now. but there is a danger. there is a significant danger that could happen. because if you take lloyd's where we are i would say the last five years, we have been very successful. average return on capital is 14.5%. t
